DCDEE Memo: July 28, 2020 School Age Capacity Survey: Response Needed BEFORE 2:00 PM TUESDAY

Dear Child Care Provider,
North Carolina is currently preparing for the return of students to school.  On July 14, 2020, Governor Cooper announced that schools are allowed to open for in-person instruction under an updated Plan B that requires face coverings for all K-12 students, fewer children in the classroom, measures to ensure social distancing for everyone in the building, and other safety protocols. Plan B permits a hybrid model of schooling--blending in-person with online instruction.
While many school systems have adopted the Plan B approach, others have decided to move forward with Plan C, which allows remote learning only.  Some school systems are still planning..  Regardless of which plan is selected, child care is key to supporting the children and families in the state.  
To assist with planning, the Division of Child Development and Early Education seeks your input regarding the capacity of your child care facility to serve school age children. 

DCDEE is requesting EVERY child care facility respond to the Survey on Availability of School Age Care BEFORE 2pm on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.
Thank you in advance for your assistance with collecting this information.  
Kristi Snuggs
Interim Director
